Positive trading update results in big move up for RMC share price
Here are the key points from the RMC update:
‘• 1H21 Normalised NPAT guidance in the range of $48m – $53m reflecting low 30 day BBSW resets, disciplined cost control, and Assets Under Management growth.
‘• Home loan settlements from July to October were $1.4b (c65% Prime; c35% Specialist).
‘• Resimac home loan Assets Under Management [AUM] at 31 October 2020 was $12.7b (30 June 2020 $12.4b).
‘• At 31 October, approximately 4.4% of customers were in COVID payment deferrals (30 June 2020 10%).’
Solid numbers, particularly given the crowing about an Australia-wide housing crisis that frequently pop up.
No doubt buying a home is expensive in Australia — but the fact that RMC was able to grow its AUM in this environment is partly due to government intervention, partly due to the ineptitude of the Big Four banks.
And of course, factors internal to RMC.
Outlook for RMC share price
With strong upward momentum, Melbourne out of lockdown, and a government that knows how much the residential property market matters to citizens, RMC looks to be in a strong position.
RMC has a P/E ratio of 11.9 and a dividend yield of just below 2% after the run up, but the RMC share price may keep moving up after a retracement.
For context, with moves this size it’s not uncommon to see a smaller move down the next day.
